Venice Architecture Biennale 2020 postponed to August


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the opening of the Venice Biennale of Architecture has been postponed to August 29, the organizers announced.

Following the outbreak of the Coronavirus disease in Italy and many other countries in Europe and around the world, including China and the United States, the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale, curated by Hashim Sarkis, is now rescheduled from August 19 to November 29, 2020. This will reduce the usual duration of the world’s most important architecture exhibition from about six months to eight weeks.
